Stange name for a training course? Not if you have a bully that lunges, pulls or goes ballistic at the sight of another dog. You know exactly what we are talking about because you know that's what the owners of the other dogs you encounter in your daily routine are probably saying about you and your best friend.
Can we transform your dog aggressive baby into the "belle of the ball"- probably not but "Here Comes THAT Dog" gives you and your short nose guy or gal the skills to manage both of your fears and phobias to manage typical daily encounters. Most importantly, you as an owner will learn how to manage your dog and proactively set them up to succeed rather than simply reacting to bad dog on dog interactions that stress you both.
"Here Comes THAT Dog" is one of the most important classes in our "Training Essentials" series. This five (5) week class begins with teaching you and your dog the core concepts of positive reward based training for the short nose breeds. Our unique Dynamic Lesson Plan format allows our trainer to customize each class to the needs of the participants. This class is specifically tailored to other dog interactions. This is not a dog socialization class- our goal for this class is to help ldogs with significant reactive fright issues learn to react more appropriately.
This class size is restricted to four participants. We will need a minimum participation of 2-3 dogs to make the learning experience from this class effective. We reserve the right to cancel the class is we are unable to meet minimum participation requirements.
SPECIAL NOTE- This class is not an option for any dog that has exhibited any form of aggression toward people. We can direct you to other training alternatives that would be more appropriate before attempting a group class. Our instructor reserves the right to decline future training services to any dog whose behavioral needs exceed the capabilities of this class. Unsued services will receive be transferable to a private session or refundable.
How are trainaBull classes different?
Our core classes are all designed and managed by the trainaBull Academy and led by a bulldog specialist. We do not refer you out to "partners" for a generic class for a referral fee. We own our classes and are proud of our successes. You will not find yourself next to a Golden at one of our classes- we're just bulldogs!
Our classes are exclusive to English and French Bulldogs, Pugs and Boston Terriers and we will have one or more staff members at every session to assure that your dog is getting proper attention. We are not a "one size fits all" training program and all of our classes are geared to the specific needs of the students in each class.
We offer other training options for dog owners who may have needs in between our scheduled classes in the Resources section of our website.
All our classes are open to all English and French Bulldogs, Pugs and Boston Terriers- including breeder, shelter, and rescue bulldogs from any group.
Our group classes are led by reknown instructor Mary Scheffke. Mary has decades of of canine training experience and English and French Bulldogs are her area of specialty. Mary is the lead training and behavioral consultant for adoptaBull English Bulldog Rescue.
